New Drawings

Part of a group of new drawings of the Shropshire of my childhood. These views are drawn from Google Streetview, which has now ventured out of the major towns and cities to survey much of semi-rural England. The use of Streetview seems to set up a similar distancing to the photographs that my parents send to me that I use for my paintings. Places are therefore revealed anew, but at a distance, both physically and in time.
